Casa Limón or Lime house is a 1901 adobe duplex located in the beautiful and historic Barrio Viejo just one block from the main Gem and Mineral show at the Tucson Convention Center and a 10 minute walk to either the heart of downtown or Mercado San Agustin.

The space
The property has been meticulously restored to show the layers of history and character that only a true historic home will have (circa 1901) Living room/kitchen walls feature plaster and adobe that is over 100 years old and an exposed wood ceiling from the same time that has a surprise feature.

The addition mirrors the historic adobe structure to create a butterfly roof that channels water to future cisterns. Within the addition are the bedrooms and bathrooms. There are 2 private bedrooms with locks. One bedroom is the master suite with an en suite bath. The other is an office with 2 desk spaces and a queen size wall bed. The third queen size bed is a fold out couch in the living room. The second bathroom is located off the hallway and is attached to the laundry room.

The yard is completely enclosed and has a front porch and side deck that is covered by an ocotillo ramada. On the side yard is also a cowboy cooking bonfire pit.

All the historic character with all the modern conveniences:
-Brand new state of the art kitchen with 5 burner gas stove, refrigerator and dishwasher with rustic alder cabinets and quartz counters.
-New plumbing features high efficiency fixtures and grey water system that waters the garden. (Water the plants while you shower!)
-Unit includes washer/dryer (special laundry detergent will be provided to not kill the plants).
-New electrical includes a house that is completely wired (for example: ethernet ports in the office but also wifi throughout) for high speed communications.
-"August" smart locks on the gate and front door so you will not have to worry about losing keys because your smartphone will operate the locks.

Where you’ll be

Tucson, Arizona, United States

This historic, vibrant, and unique community is an extremely popular muse for photographers, painters, and other artists alike. In fact, this neighborhood is so cherished, it is soon to be a National Historic Landmark. This neighborhood began to form in the 1800s and was "an expression of the institutions of Spanish imperial colonialism as embodied in the Laws of the Indies and the limitations imposed by a frontier culturally and economically impoverished by great distance from its center." Or In Layman's terms: Much of the architecture is a direct reflection of the Spanish Imperial building / town planning guidelines called the "Laws of the Indies" however because of it's detachment from the "motherland" it has a unique vernacular or "built by common people" architecture. Barrio Viejo is "one of the largest surviving concentrations of Sonoran Adobe flush‑front architecture and urban block typology in the American southwest." Make sure to bring your camera.
